Personalized coaching for current and future college leaders

What is personalized leadership coaching?

Sometimes referred to as executive coaching, personalized leadership coaching is a partnership between the coach and the leader in which the leader is able to confidentially explore and clarify desired achievements, engage in self-discovery, identify solutions, and gain competency in new areas.

Who benefits from personalized leadership coaching?

  • Boards of Trustees who want to ensure their president has a successful, long-term tenure.
  • Presidents who need a confidential sounding board to explore new ideas, enhance or refresh their leadership style, or move into new areas of competency.
  • Presidents who wish to retain their best team members and ensure that an internal leadership pipeline exists for succession planning.
  • New or interim presidents who want to successfully navigate the first 6 months to a year of their presidencies.
  • Vice presidents, deans, directors, or faculty who are considering the next step in their careers.
